Seventy percent of affluent Black Americans consider themselves as financially successful as 75 percent of their non-Black counterparts. Another 61 percent of younger affluent Black Americans say that their financial situation has improved from a year ago.Despite the overall optimism, Black Americans still feel pessimism about the structural racism they have to deal with in their finances.
